Bowlers should look at wickets saved by Ever, says Bengali guide to Tigers S Sreesanth
One of the most followed cricketers of modern times is India’s Sreesanth, for his excellent bowling abilities and mercurial ways, as well as for unsavory incidents of match-fixing and the dark side of the game.
Part of the Indian team that won the inaugural T20 Globalism 2007 World Cup and 2011 ODI World Cup At home, Srisanth’s celebrated career is now in the mentor role with the Bengal Tigers captained by Shakib Al Hasan in the sixth edition of the Abu Dhabi T10.

Talking about T10 from a fielder’s point of view, Sreesanth said, “It’s the fastest form and it’s a lot of fun. And when you’re bowling against dangerous batsmen, you have to support yourself. As a bowler, you have to believe you can get wickets and not think about running as much.” I’m really enjoying it so far.”
However, Sreesanth’s Bangla Tigers didn’t have the best start to their season, losing three of their first four matches.
“As a bowling unit we have to be more consistent. We have 3 more matches and we have to win matches well so our NRR is boosted as well. We have a little break and we’ll work things out. In a short tournament it’s all about fading together. It’s just a matter of another win, we’ve got a great team.” And if players like Evin Lewis and Colin Monroe continue, nothing like that.”
Sreesanth, who has been at the center of many intense white ball competitions, believes T10 can also help players claim national teams and franchises in other formats of the game.
“Any format you play in can be very beneficial. The best part about T10 is the high speed and this platform allows you to show your skills in front of the well known franchises and coaches in the game. Every match is different and if I am an existing player I will strive to give my best at every opportunity.”
“It is very important to set the standard whether you are a new player or an established cricketer so that it helps to get attention for the big leagues.”
Talking about being in the same camp with his arch-rival Pakistan Muhammad Amir, the Bengal Tigers mentor said that they both hit it off pretty well.
“Yes, it is fun and I am really grateful to be working with so many of the best players in the world during the Abu Dhabi T10. At the end of the day our focus is on supporting ourselves and doing well for the team. As bowlers it doesn’t matter who is the batsman but we have to support ourselves to get on the wicket”.
